I'm also curious if a VPN would affect anything. I just started using one this week thanks to the HORRIBLE repeal of the FCC privacy rules. I might not use the VPN for the ticket-buying process just in case.

I had the same issue - first got into a waiting room, then kicked out, then into another one, then kicked out and now it's just a countdown page :(

Hi,
I logged in via the personal link and that did it.
interestingly i went into the queue...then into a broken link...then into the waiting room...but..
should be ok...i guess?

Greetings and Good Luck,

Ticket Waiting Room Hangout

Post by spacetime » Wed Mar 29, 2017 11:48 am

Poked around for a thread of other folks waiting for tickets right now. Didn't see one.

I suppose the tip and trick here is to have pre-registered?

How is the wait going folks?

Think I screwed up already: Wanted to sign into Ticketfly, paste code and then hit "enter" at noon but when I refreshed the Ticketfly page to sign in, I was immediately taken to the walking Green Man. I opened another page to try signing in and the Green Man disappeared and now I'm stuck looking at a screen that says:
BURNING MAN 2017: Main Sale

The sale will start soon.

There is no need to refresh this page. You'll automatically be advanced to the queue.

Has anyone else seen the little Green Man?

I saw the green man twice, got thrown into ticketfly (which obviously hadn't stated selling tickets yet) and now I'm back into the waiting room looking at the countdown...

Sad to not be partaking in this ticket fiasco. It's always fun/stressful. Oh well.. DST for the win!

Good luck to everyone!

Ready.... set.... go!

Sooo... I was immediately advanced to the end of the line and bought tickets immediately.

No hacks, just following the directions.
